Senate President Sweeney in North Brunswick Monday, July 28

July 27, 2014 at 8:56 PM

TRENTON, NJ - Looking to highlight the impact the state’s budget has on everyday, hard working New Jerseyans, Senate President Steve Sweeney will visit the Brain Injury Alliance of New Jersey (BIANJ) office at 825 Georges Road in North Brunswick on Monday July 28 at 12:30 PM. The BIANJ is a statewide nonprofit that works to improve the quality of life after brain injury.  It was founded in 1981 by a small group of parents whose children had sustained brain injury. The group was informed last fall of the elimination of state funding.  In response, the Legislature, through the state budget, provided $140,000 through the New Jersey Brain Injury Research Fund to the Brain Injury Alliance of New Jersey.

Senate President Sweeney entered public service after his daughter was born with Down syndrome. He was horrified at the manner in which individuals with disabilities were treated and set out to make a difference not just in his daughter’s life, but in the lives of those in his community.  After being elected to the State Senate, he took his efforts throughout all of New Jersey.
